Episode 50 of our podcast Rated NA will be going live tomorrow afternoon, but we felt obligated to share these incredible responses to this weeks question: “What video game franchise, film, or television series will be viewed as art in 100 years and why?” On top of getting a ton of stellar responses from our friends and readers, we were also lucky enough to hear back from a number of the people that made the past 15 months at Nerd Appropriate so awesome. One of the best things about being a part of this site, is getting to talk with such incredibly creative people about the things we love, and for that we’re immensely grateful. Take a look at what some of our friends in the industry had to say about the future.
Okay, guys. Let’s get real. I’m a HUGE Assassin’s Creed fan. Those of you who listen to the podcast already know this, so kudos to you awesome folks for believing me over Matt. *wink*
Today something amazing happened – the new trailer for AC4 came out and it’s fantastic! Get ready to be transported to a time of pirates and plunder. Arg!
Before you jump down to view the video though, I want you to know when I first saw this trailer, my world exploded into a cacophony of brilliant, multicolored sparkles. Well, to be fair, it was actually when I first laid eyes on our new protagonist, Edward Kenway. A little dramatic, yes, but I’m excited. It should be noted that Kenway is the father of Haytham (AC3) and grandfather to Connor, AC3’s Native American protagonist. More than that, he is HAWT and it looks like Ezio may have some serious competition for being the most intriguing killer. Who doesn’t like swashbuckling, swarthy heartthrobs?
And for those of you who are into that sort of thing, lookie – there’s some naked girls, too! Bodice-rippers rejoice!
Back to the game. It appears you (as Kenway) are captain of “The Jackdaw” in this open-world action game complete with naval combat. I’m sure many of you will be pleased to see ship battles returning to the high seas. I know I am. Many hours were spent in AC3 destroying vessels and upgrading my ship. Great job by Ubisoft for adding that nugget of gameplay to an already-fun adventure series!
So, sit back and enjoy the tale Blackbeard weaves about your new favorite assassin…
Needless to say, I can’t wait to get my hands on this game. It drops Oct 29th on current gen, and interestingly, the trailer states, “Also coming for next-gen consoles.”
